Pride and Prejudice

Every type of mother wants the same dream for their daughters, especially in the 1800s. One mother in particular wants this dream so badly for her daughter, that she will go to extreme lengths to attain it. Mrs. Bennet will stop at nothing to get all of her 5 daughters married off. Luckily for her, a very wealthy bachelor named Mr. Bingley has just arrived in their home town of Netherfield Park. After Mr. Bennet pays a visit to Mr. Bingley, the Bennet daughters, Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty, and Lydia, attend a ball in which Mr. Bingley is present along with his sister and his dear friend Mr. Darcy.

Elizabeth, the protagonist of this novel, hates Mr. Darcy, especially after Mr. Darcy refuses to dance with her at the ball. From there Elizabeth makes a promise to herself that she will never fall in love with Mr. Darcy. Unfortunately for her, fate is inevitable. Elizabeth seems to be seeing Mr. Darcy everywhere she goes. Is it fate? Throughout this novel Elizabeth, along with her sisters, are tangled up into a life of never ending drama that seems to follow her everywhere.

Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen, was such a pleasure to read, especially when you LOVE romance. From the time I opened the book, I was hooked. Elizabeth Bennet is a strong girl that shows you that you don’t need love to be happy. Jane Austen did an amazing job transferring that era into pages for entertainment. Austen can turn non-believers of love into believers with just a turn of a page on any of her novels. This book is a classic that will continue to bring people joy and pleasure.
